Default Can't flash KRT16S (from KRT16O)

Hi everybody
When the factory images came out, I flash my N4 with the stock factory images that we used to find here : https://developers.google.com/androi...es#occamkrt16s because it is now the KRT16S build

After a few days, when the KRT16S build came out, I was proposed in my phone to update it. I downloaded it, tried to flash it but nothing worked, I'm still on KRT16O and the OTA doesn't appear anymore... Then I remembered that I flashed a mod found here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2527525 (that's a great mod btw) so I guessed that I could reflash the undo file available on the thread, flash the ota file dl mannually (I attached it in this thread) which I did through TWRP. Then I was able to see the problem, it told me that, from what I remember, Agenda.apk was missing (I think it's diary in english, not sure) then I remembered that I manually deleted some apps I never use (diary is one of them...)

So, what's next, shall I reflash the gapps to finally update my phone

Thanks for your help

I run the 2.6.3.3 version I guess it's the latest because I flashed it a few days ago
I installed the few missing apps that i uninstalled and Calendar didn't create any error. This time it EmailGoogle.apk... I transformed it as a system application and I went to /system/app to change its name from com.google.android.apps.email or something to EmailGoogle.apk, didn't work... But I'm sure I'm on the way to achieve it

Here's the whole mesage :

Code:
Updating partition details...

You can not install an apk in recovery. Use ES File Explorer to install the apk. In addition, to avoid the error, while you are in recovery, select "Mount" and uncheck the box "System" when flashing a zip file.

I did not installed it with TWRP, I did it by simply openning the apk while my phone is on, it installed the Email app...
But thanks anyway for the mount function, I'll give a try

Simpler way to update without OTA package:

Download the factory image, and before running the flash-all script, open it with a text editor and change "fastboot -w update" to "fastboot update"
HTC One V (August 27th 2012 - August 3rd 2013, still own) -> LG Nexus 4 (August 3rd 2013 - January 11th 2014, still own) -> Nokia Lumia 520 (January 11th 2014 - present)

I'm not as active as I used to be. I still show up from time to time.

You mean with the sdk? I don't know how to use it, when I flash something, it's with the recovery or the nexus root toolkit..

Try avoiding toolkits as they can lead to problems and leave you stuck with no idea what to do. Yes he is referring to the sdk. Only the platform-tools folder in the sdk is required so if you don't wanna bother downloading the complete file, just download the platform-tools from here and extract it to an appropriate location. Extract and move the Factory Image that you downloaded to your platform-tools directory. If you don't want your data to be erased, edit the flash-all script with a text editor and remove -w and save. Plug in your phone. Make sure you have the drivers installed. In the platform tools directory, press shift+right click> open command prompt here. Type adb devices. You will see "device <Serial Number>. If you don't, your drivers are faulty. Then type adb reboot bootloader. Once your phone has rebooted into bootloader, make sure that it is being detected by typing fastboot devices. You should see an output similar to adb devices. Now simply run the flash-all script and let it do its work. Reboot after flashing is completed.
Hope this helps!
